32. Nutrition for injury prevention, management and recovery (Part 2) with Andrew Hall

November 10, 2019

This week, we are back talking to Brisbane based sports dietitian, Andrew Hall in part 2 of the 2 part series on nutrition for injury prevention, recovery and sports nutrition

Andrew is an accredited sports dietitian, motivated by improving the nutrition, health and performance of others, working with a range of individuals, from recreational to elite athletes. He has a particular interest relating to injury management nutrition (muscle loss mitigation, tendons, inflammation) and optimising body composition for performance & health (muscle gain & fat loss). Andrew provides sports nutrition advice to the Brisbane Broncos rugby league team, the Brisbane Bullets basketball team and the Brisbane Bandits baseball team. Ensure you give Andrew a follow on his Instagram @Andrew_hall_dietitian and check out his website: https://andrewhalldietitian.com for more information. 

In part 1 of the 2 part series, Andrew and I discussed the emerging area of nutrition for injury prevention and his evidenced based tips to prevent and recover from injury and illness. We talk about minimising fat gain and muscle loss while injured or sick and how nutrition can assist. We also briefly touch on supplementation also so if you haven't listened to that episode, we recommend you go back and listen to it before this one. 

In part 2 of the series, Andrew and I discuss pre and post workout nutrition (with reference to training fasted vs with fuel on board), supplementation (testing, safety, effectiveness and evidence) with specific reference to protein powder, caffeine, creatine and beetroot. We also chat about how to recover faster between sessions (nothing worse than DOMS), rest day nutrition advice, nutrition tips for training and refuelling the every day athlete.
